In a remarkable interfaith gesture, acclaimed Hindu leader Rajan Zed has been invited to inaugurate and bless the Unity Center in Nevada's capital Carson City, which houses a Christian church named Unity Church of Today (UTD), with Sanskrit shlokas from ancient Hindu scriptures, next month.

Zed, who is president of the Universal Society of Hinduism, plans to pray on the occasion from Rig-Veda, oldest existing scripture dated around 1,500 BCE, besides Upanishads and Bhagavad-Gita, both ancient Hindu scriptures.

Jewish, Buddhist, Christian, Native American, etc., prayers will also be held on the occasion, according to Reverend Larry Edward Schneider, Minister of the Church, who says, "We are dedicating the Unity Center as a place for Spiritual Transformation - one where we are working together in lighting the infinite paths to awareness." He wants to open up the Center to all spiritual traditions.
